Plessey becomes the official ‘Team Challenge’ Sponsor for Britain’s Ocean City Running Festival!
Plessey Semiconductors is delighted to announce that we are the official ‘Team Challenge’ sponsor for Britain’s Ocean City Running Festival, consisting of the Plymouth Half, Plymouth 10k and Plymouth 5k.
Every year, the ‘Team Challenge’ plays a pivotal role in all three racing events, which sees teams of co-workers, family members, and friends unite to take on their chosen race. Last year there were over 60 teams taking part in the Team Challenge, and it’s a fantastic way to promote a healthy and active lifestyle and raise money for Charity.
Each team that takes part in the Plymouth Half, Plymouth 10k and Plymouth 5k have a chance to win the ‘Team Challenge’ trophy, and for the Plymouth Half and Plymouth 10k, participating teams can potentially win £250 for their chosen charity.
Plessey microLEDs excel in engineering, working with world leaders in consumer technology who are paving the way with innovative next-generation augmented reality and wearable applications based on advanced microLED display solutions.
Jack Clench, an Engineering Technician at Plessey, said, “Having completed the half marathon a couple of times before, joining was always in the back of my mind. However, when I found out Plessey was sponsoring the event, I thought it would be an amazing way to get back into running and kickstart the training after a hiatus due to Covid. It’s always a great way to try and raise some money for charity as well!”
Susie Morcom, Director of HR, said, “We are absolutely thrilled to be supporting Britain’s Ocean City Running Festival. Having previously completed the Plymouth Half and 10k, I am aware of how incredibly well organised these events are, their important contribution to the local community and who can argue with the iconic start and finish on Plymouth Hoe! Sponsoring the Team Challenge has enabled us to engage our own team as part of our employee wellbeing strategy, and as a large employer in the city, we look forward to showcasing Plessey and the fantastic opportunities to join our ever-growing team.”
Suzi Cumberland, Race Director of Britain’s Ocean City Running Festival, said, “We are delighted to welcome Plessey as the official sponsor of the ‘Team Challenge’. Plessey has a passion for delivering solid employee engagement, therefore, the Team Challenge is the perfect way to engage their staff and lead on an exciting part of the running festival experience. We look forward to working closely with Plessey to deliver a successful event this June.”
Britain’s Ocean City Running Festival takes place on Sunday 19th June 2022. You can enter as a team and find out more information online at https://www.runplymouth.co.uk/.
